Interim Manager, part China based, to resolve delays within domestic flagship high value projects
Within two days established the causes of delay and in principle the solutions
Setup (two days) part level tracking, responsibility allocation and escalation processes
Managed all, embedded processes, delays quantified and eliminated, projects came in ahead of schedule
As Interim Manager initially based in China, I was brought in to resolve late delivery of parts/assemblies for a business-critical very large parcel handling project to a key customer.
I established the root causes of delay across various functions within the business – engineering, factory, supply chain, etc – then set up and ran daily part level tracking and expediting processes to create visibility and allow specific actions to be taken.
I directly resolved one off critical path issues wherever they occurred.
My input ensured that the project delay was recovered and changed ways of working were embedded.
